Attorneys for Injured Maritime Workers in Los Angeles
Los Angeles, California, is one of the most well-known cities in the United States. It is the cultural, financial, and commercial center of Southern California. L.A., as it is affectionately known, has a population of just under four million people, making it the second most populated city in the United States.
Considering that Los Angeles is located in a large coastal basin off the coast of the Pacific Ocean, it should come as no surprise that Los Angeles is home to two of the busiest seaports in the Country: the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach.
Maritime or admiralty law is federal law that applies to vessels on navigable waters, including large cargo ships, cruise ships, fishing boats, and even jet skis. Since maritime law is federal law, it applies across the board to employers, vessel owners, seamen, and other maritime workers to help them with recovery in the event of an accident.
